Prevalence of Steatosis Hepatis in the Region: Impact on Graft Acceptance Rates.

HPB Surg 2018 1;2018:6094936. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Surgery, Campus Charité Mitte ∣ Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Experimental Surgery and Regenerative Medicine, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin 13353, Germany.

Due to the shortage of liver allografts and the rising prevalence of fatty liver disease in the general population, steatotic liver grafts are considered for transplantation. This condition is an important risk factor for the outcome after transplantation. We here analyze the characteristics of the donor pool offered to the from 2010 to 2016 with respect to liver allograft nonacceptance and steatosis hepatis. Read More

Proposal of Two Prognostic Models for the Prediction of 10-Year Survival after Liver Resection for Colorectal Metastases.

HPB Surg 2018 21;2018:5618581. Epub 2018 Oct 21.

General, Visceral and Transplantation Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Germany.

Background: One-third of 5-year survivors after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CLM) develop recurrence or tumor-related death. Therefore 10-year survival appears more adequate in defining permanent cure. The aim of this study was to develop prognostic models for the prediction of 10-year survival after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases. Read More

The Falciform Ligament for Mesenteric and Portal Vein Reconstruction in Local Advanced Pancreatic Tumor: A Surgical Guide and Single-Center Experience.

HPB Surg 2018 1;2018:2943879. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Surgery, Charité Campus Mitte and Charité Campus Virchow Klinikum, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Background: Since local tumor infiltration to the mesenteric-portal axis might represent a challenging assignment for curative intended resectability during pancreatic surgery, appropriate techniques for venous reconstruction are essential. In this study, we acknowledge the falciform ligament as a feasible and convenient substitute for mesenteric and portal vein reconstruction with high reliability and patency for local advanced pancreatic tumor.

Methods: A retrospective single-center analysis. Read More

Nonoperative Management May Be a Viable Approach to Plexiform Neurofibroma of the Porta Hepatis in Patients with Neurofibromatosis-1.

HPB Surg 2018 15;2018:7814763. Epub 2018 Apr 15.

Department of Surgery, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY 13210, USA.

Background: Plexiform neurofibroma (PNF) in the porta hepatis (PH) is an unusual manifestation of neurofibromatosis-1 (NF-1). Resection is often recommended given the risk of malignant transformation. We encountered a challenging case in clinical practice which prompted us to report our findings and perform a systematic review on the management of these tumors. Read More

Normothermic Ex Vivo Machine Perfusion for Liver Grafts Recovered from Donors after Circulatory Death: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

HPB Surg 2018 23;2018:6867986. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Department of Surgery, Division of General Surgery, University of Alberta Hospital, 2D4.41 W.M.C, 8440-112 St., Edmonton, AB, Canada T6G 2B7.

As a result of donation after circulatory death liver grafts' poor tolerance to cold storage, there has been increasing research interest in normothermic machine perfusion. This study aims to systematically review the current literature comparing normothermic perfusion to cold storage in donation after circulatory death liver grafts and complete a meta-analysis of published large animal and human studies. A total of nine porcine studies comparing cold storage to normothermic machine perfusion for donation after circulatory death grafts were included for analysis. Read More

Child-Pugh Parameters and Platelet Count as an Alternative to ICG Test for Assessing Liver Function for Major Hepatectomy.

HPB Surg 2017;2017:2948030. Epub 2017 Aug 29.

Department of Surgery, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

Objective: To study the correlations and discrepancies between Child-Pugh system and indocyanine green (ICG) clearance test in assessing liver function reserve and explore the possibility of combining two systems to gain an overall liver function assessment.

Design: Retrospective analysis of 2832 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients graded as Child-Pugh A and Child-Pugh B with ICG clearance test being performed was conducted.

Results: ICG retention rate at 15 minutes (ICG15) correlates with Child-Pugh score, however, with a large variance. Read More

Division of Anesthesiology, Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, Policlinico S. Orsola-Malpighi, Via Massarenti 9, 40138 Bologna, Italy.

Introduction. Laparoscopic liver resection is considered risky in cirrhotic patients, even if minor surgical trauma of laparoscopy could be useful to prevent deterioration of a compromised liver function. This study aimed to identify the differences in terms of perioperative complications and early outcome in cirrhotic patients undergoing minor hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma with open or laparoscopic technique.
